what is the head type?
The description says "Torx countersunk or hex head." It can't be both.
Hi, this is for the countersunk version, the hex head version can be found here: http://www.screwfix.com/p/rawlplug-universal-ffi-frame-fixings-10-x-80mm-pack-of-50/38928
I will ask for the listing to be amended, thank you!

Are these Rawlplug Universal FFI Frame Fixings 10 x 120mm suitable for fitting a meranti hardwood garage door frame?
The side-hung doors are meranti hardwood too, each approximately 1mx2m. Can you advise how to use the fixings please, or does the pack include instructions? I presume the holes are drilled in the timber, then the underlying brickwork marked and drilled. Next each fixing is inserted through the timber, hammered into the brickwork almost the whole way, then screwed tight? Thanks.
these certainly are suitable for this application. The number of fixings would depend on the total weight of the doors being hung. Your presumption of the installation method is correct. You can however drill straight through the timber and into the brick if you had everything securely in place (alternatively drill the timber, then drill the brick through the holes in the timber), which will ensure everything is lined up perfectly. Fixings should be hammered in until the plug is flush with the face of the timber.
